Galaxy Integrated Resorts and GICC have recently wrapped up three successful China roadshows in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. Key travel trade and MICE industry professionals networked over cocktails and attended exclusive, appreciation dinners to learn more about the resort precinct and receive updates on Macau as a safe destination to host events.
At each roadshow, Galaxy Integrated Resorts revealed the latest offerings and introduced the Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC), set to open in the second half of 2021 at the resort precinct.
Let’s check out the event highlights:
Galaxy’s New Star
With the arrival of GICC next year, the new MICE convention center is set to become Asia’s most iconic and advanced MICE destination.
Seamlessly situated within the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, GICC will offer 40,000m² of total MICE space, a 650-seat Auditorium, the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena and the 700-room Andaz Macau – all in one location. For large-scale exhibitions, GICC offers 10,000m² of pillar-less convention and exhibition areas that can cater for 7,000 delegates. Galaxy Arena will play host to major sports events, world-class concerts, thrilling fight nights and corporate launches. The arena’s impressive design, state-of-the-art audio-visual, lighting and communication systems set the stage for events of any kind. For smaller-scale events, the 650-seat Auditorium will offer an intimate venue for product launches, keynote sessions or musical performances. The venue also features state-of-the-art audio-visual and lighting systems, designed to the world's highest standards. With direct vehicle access for loading and unloading with easy access rigging grids, event organizers can even drive a car directly onto the stage for a product launch.
Guests who want to be at the doorstep of the convention center or Galaxy Arena, the vibrant luxury lifestyle hotel – Andaz Macau – is conveniently located within GICC. Rooted in local art and culture inspired by the rich Chinese and Portuguese heritage of Macau, all of the rooms and suites at Andaz Macau have been artfully designed to highlight key elements of the city. Visitors will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in a truly authentic Macau experience all throughout their stay. Also purposefully designed with MICE visitors in mind, the hotel will provide a dedicated private check-in lounge catering for large MICE groups.
Ahead of their openings next year, both GICC and Andaz Macau have already received the “Most Anticipated Convention Center” and “Most Anticipated Hotel” Golden Five Star awards from CICE (China International Conference and Exhibition) magazine – the “MICE Oscars” of China.
Award-winning “Asian Heart” Service
Galaxy Integrated Resorts is renowned the world over for its “Asian Heart” service. In 2020, all six hotels at the resort precinct received raving reviews and accolades from TripAdvisor, Agoda.com and Hotels.com for consistently offering exceptional experiences. Banyan Tree Macau, Galaxy Hotel™, Hotel Okura Macau, JW Marriott Hotel Macau, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau and Broadway Hotel all earned top marks for their service offerings.
When GICC opens next year, a brand new team of in-house event professionals known as EVENT STUDIO will take “Asian Heart” service to an even higher level. Event organizers will now have access to a one-stop team of planners to assist in the creation of events at GICC and all across the resort precinct. With the assistance of EVENT STUDIO, delegates will be able to enjoy new experiences each day, and meeting organizers will not have to worry about the logistics of arranging transportation as all venues are within convenient walking distance to one another.
An array of versatile venues – all in one destination
Perfectly positioned within the multiple award-winning Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, GICC is within walking distance to 1.1 million m² of one-stop entertainment, including the Promenade Shop which offers 200 world-renowned luxury retail brands, and more than 120 dining options. It is also easily accessible to the Grand Resort Deck, which boasts the world’s largest Skytop Wave Pool, the longest Skytop Aquatic Adventure River Rapids at 575 meters and a 150m pristine, white sand beach.
In addition to Andaz Macau, guests may also choose to stay at any one of the 6 world-class hotels at the resort precinct – Banyan Tree Macau, Galaxy Hotel™, Hotel Okura Macau, JW Marriott Hotel Macau, The Ritz-Carlton, Macau and Broadway Hotel.

Macau is ready
Since the start of the outbreak, the Macau SAR government has carefully contained the spread of COVID-19. As of July 17, there have been no new cases in Macau and the government continues to remain vigilant in protecting all visitors to Macau.
The health and safety of visitors is a major priority at Galaxy Integrated Resorts. To prevent the spread of the virus, the resort precinct implemented enhanced health and safety measures in three major ways: health screening; comprehensive disinfection measures and taking extra precautions to protect every guest. The entire Galaxy Integrated Resorts experience – from the moment of arrival, to dining at our restaurants, staying in our guestrooms and enjoying our entertainment venues – will be a safe and pleasant one.
We want you to be able to meet with confidence, and that is why we remain vigilant in safeguarding each and every one of our guests. We are ready, and look forward to welcoming you soon.
